Table Manners


Published 1947


Mrs. Post in her garden in Edgartown, Mass. in floral dress, pearls, white gloves and funny hat. "Most people are at ease in their own homes, but often are confused at a dinner party."
Emily Post says "Manners at the most formal dinner party are exactly the same as they are at home." Rather formal directions in how to eat soup; how to serve meat in a house without a maid; which implements to use in cutting salad and eating fruit; proper use of a finger bowl; the difficulties of eating spaghetti gracefully; how to handle chicken bones and other "unwanted morsels;" and much more. Some examples of bad manners.
Supposedly, this film was made specifically for boys.
